Scratchboard Progression.

I thought you might like to see how I work.
So here is a little series of shots taken as I worked
on this new scratchboard of Toots the goat.

First I draw the major outlines of my subjects body.
And then start on one little corner creating scratches
that create texture and shading.

I continue, and give myself pep talks to keep going.
Sometimes I get anxious about how it will turn out.

And finally when I feel I have scratched enough,
I say it's done.  
It's such a fun art form.  I feel quite lucky to have stumbled upon it.
